Roma boss Jose Mourinho became just the second manager to win five European trophies after winning the Europa Conference League. Roma beat Feyenoord 1-0 despite the latter dominating much of the game. Giovanni Trapattoni is the only other manager to achieve this historical feat. The Portuguese manager had earlier won the Champions League, Europa League, and UEFA Cup.
“The great thing about my career is that, aside from the Europa League with Manchester United, doing it with Porto, Inter and Roma are very, very, very special,” Jose Mourinho said. “It is one thing to win when everyone expects it when you made the investments to win, but it’s quite another to win when something feels immortal, that feels truly special. This remains in the history of Roma, but also mine. I was told only I, Sir Alex (Ferguson) and Giovanni Trapattoni won trophies in three different decades. It makes me feel a little old, but it’s nice for my career.”
“Now I am staying, there are no doubts. Even if some rumors emerge, I only want to remain at Roma,” he added. “We must understand what our owners, who are fantastic people, want to do next season because this is history, but we can build a really strong project with honest professionals. Of course, I feel like a Romanista, but that might be my way of working. I am a Porto fan, an Inter fan, a Chelsea fan, I am crazy about Real Madrid, I am now a Roma fan, I belong to all those clubs because we had these moments together.”
